With the first session of JEE Main 2019 just a few days away, your preparation must be in full swing! You’re probably trying to tie up all loose ends and (hopefully) practicing mock papers like the devil.
However, that practice might fall flat on its face. Why? Because JEE Main 2019 will be conducted online.
For those who love the traditional and comfortable way of solving on a paper with a pen/ pencil – this is definitely bad news. A computer can seem awkward. And if you use it for the first time during the final exam, expect mistakes to crop up. Little hang-ups which can jeopardize all the hard work you did in the last 2 years.
What is the solution you ask? Practice online.
Even if you are sitting at home in your pajamas, you can practice previous year papers and solve mock question papers online. A lot of websites and portals have opened up for the same. Aakash Institute is one such coaching center offering the option of online studying.
Here is why we recommend heading over to Akash Digital for your online preparation of JEE 2019.
Familiarize yourself for test day
When you sit in your seat for the final exam and open the test portal, you don’t want to be fumbling with the mouse or keyboard because you don’t know what to do or where an option is. After taking an online test, you will know which options are where – this will save a lot of time on the final day. These tests create an environment like that of the final exam; if you take advantage of them, the number of butterflies on D-day will reduce significantly!
Know where you are facing problems
Does working on a computer reduce your calculation speed? Do you feel a bit unsure if you are not working with the pen that your father gifted you for your special exams? Do you skim questions on a screen instead of reading them fully? Whatever it is, this self-knowledge is extremely powerful since all of these seemingly little things can reap a negative mark.
You might be Usain Bolt with a pen and paper in front of you. But, with a computer, you might not be used to calculating fast. The back-and-forth between a paper and screen can consume time. By taking online prep tests, you can develop much-needed speed – this will also allow you to complete the maximum number of questions and fetch more marks.
Know where you stand
Most practice tests provide comparative analysis wherein you can see what your rank is compared to others at an All-India level. For example, Aakash is a recognized name in the education market. A lot many youngsters are expected to take its online tests. Hence, you can properly and truthfully see how well your preparation is going and whether you need to buckle up or not.
Once you complete the test, your answers and performance are analyzed to provide a comprehensive performance report. Even if you are self-studying with no aid of coaching, this aspect can come in handy. This will help you to rectify mistakes and clear concepts that you wouldn’t have been able to do on your own.
Online tests might be new for you but you can definitely crack them. When your revision is almost complete, your confidence is strong, and you are just about ready to be accepted into IIT, a small thing like a computer shouldn’t be the reason you fail to achieve your goal.
That being said, we urge you to take one yourself now by heading over to Aakash Digital. Good luck!
